Taru Taylor, a 2L at Case Western Reserve University School of Law, is named a Next Generation Leader.
The American Constitution Society picked Taylor after a competitive application process. Each year, only 20-25 students are selected for the prestigious program that gives Next Generation Leaders opportunities for career advancement and networking.
Founded in 2001, and headquartered in Washington, D.C., the American Constitution Society is an organization with 200 law school chapters and 40 lawyer chapters around the country, which seeks to promote and facilitate discussion and debate of progressive public policy ideas and issues. It promotes public service and Constitutionalism with a humane agenda.
Taylor is President of the CWRU Law School Chapter of the American Constitution Society. The chapter has hosted numerous events this year, including a debate on the Trump presidency (co-sponsored with the Federalist Society) and a talk by Cleveland City Councilman Zack Reed on the consent decree between the Cleveland Police Department and the Department of Justice. The chapter also promotes civics in the Cleveland community, for example, Taylor conducted an ACS “Love Our Constitution” seminar on the judiciary, our third branch of government, at John F. Kennedy High School (with the Black Law Students Association).
Taylor will be honored at the American Constitution Society’s national convention in Washington in June.
